Zikhron Ya'akov (Hebrew: זכרון יעקב) is a small town in the south slope of the Carmel Range, overlooking the sea. It was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond James de Rothschild. It is famous for the Carmel Winery, and for the midrahov (pedestrian only street) in the city center.

  • Walk around the picturesque historic midrahov.
  • Ramat Hanadiv. Just outside Zichron Ya'akov, this park includes a beautiful landscaped garden, the Baron de Rothschild burial site, trails in nature, and archaeological ruins including a Roman-era bathhouse and Neolithic tombs. Ramat Hanadiv is very southernmost point of the Carmel mountain range, so it has an amazing view toward the coastal plain to the south as well as the Mediterranean Sea to the west.
